Edmonton Folk Festival / Cariwest Festival - over 200 leaflets shared
August 11, 2012- This was my forth consecutive year along the Cariwest parade route and outside the Folk Festival gates civil informing my community with the latest news and information published on my social media YouTube channel "hawkeyicocburn" and web site CIactivist.org . This was the first time I experienced harassment from a single folk fest security guard who almost poked me in the eye, and claimed I was pissing people off. How he got that idea is a mystery cause everyone who excepted my leaflet expressed appreciation. I combined two locations for today's actions that included the Cariwest parade along 102 avenue and Gallagher Park's Folk Festival . As patrons of the parade waited for the parade to commence I slowly walked with leaflets in hand, offering them to anyone willing to reach out and take one. The reaction was positive knowing there are news sources available in Edmonton beyond corporate media who are willing to publish news stories without censorship. Too often we see advertisers and repressive editorial policies hog tie good journalists and reporters who want to tell the truth. Today we are witnessing an all time low regarding the trustworthiness of Canada,s corporate news media. Several well known activists in Edmonton who employ the same social media Doug uses through YouTubes, blogs and websites are featured in this latest civil information action report. Remember- don't hate the media, become the media!
